INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – No sooner did the Indianapolis Colts delete one veteran cornerback from their roster than they added another.
Xavier Rhodes, a 2013 first-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings, has agreed to a one-year contract with the Colts, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. His arrival was preceded by the release of Pierre Desir earlier this week.
Rhodes is a 6-1, 218-pounder whose resume with the Vikings includes three Pro Bowl appearances and one first-team All-Pro selections. He earned his third Pro Bowl appearance last season.
In seven seasons, Rhodes has 10 interceptions, 73 passes defensed, 15 tackles for loss and 372 tackles.
